PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable

I am trying to install the latest version of GTK but I get this error:

checking for glib-2.0 >= 2.1.4 atk >= 1.0.1 pango >= 1.0.1... Package atk was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `atk.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'atk' found

configure: error: Library requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.1.4 atk >= 1.0.1 pango >= 1.0.1) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

How do I change the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable?

Thanks in advance.

I have finally gotten gkt to install, but I was installing this to get Gaim to install. I have that explanation in another post called "Installing Gaim 0.71" I would give a link, but I don't know how to do that. Thanks for the help.
